The car owner cut the hood. It is my job to make it look good.... And so the work begins....
The hinges are from a kit for a Dodge Magnum. Needless to say, this isn't a Dodge Magnum....
Luckily, he had an extra set of fenders, making the hinge installation a bit easier.
The inner fenders were supported with 1/4 inch by 2 1/2 inch steel flat stock.
This is after much work straightening out of the Sawzall cuts:
I added 1/4" square steel rod all along the edge of the cuts to add strength
as well a a finished edge. This required some bending and lots more welding with the flux machine.
Just a random shot of the car during the work:
